Heavy Timber truss

Recommended Posts

Attached you will see the front elevation of a metal building where the camp wants a heavy timber end truss on the lower roof.

 

I used the porch tool, then added columns. Now I need to make truss. Not sure how. I Iooked for a tool to start by drawing a beam but user guide came up empty.

 

Suggestions?

Larry,  If you want it to look nice with control of the surfaces with for application of wood grain use polyline solids that can be exploded into surfaces if necessary.  If you just need a vector illustration and drawings use the truss tool and edit the member sizes to be proportional to the timbers you will be using then open the truss detail and unlock the Framing, Roof Trusses layer and edit each member as necessary.
